A bright, bold debut about a girl who was born a boy, but refuses to let that stand in the way of her dream.

More than anything else, George wants to play Charlotte in her fourth-grade class’s production of Charlotte’s Web. The problem is, her teacher won’t let her, because George is a boy. But George isn’t about to let that squash her dream. With the help of her best friend, George must learn to stand up for her wish — and brave a few bullies along the way.

Transcending all categories and genres, George is a pertinent and poignant middle-grade read for kids of all backgrounds.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for George:

"George's struggles are presented with a light, age-appropriate, and hopeful touch... Warm, funny, and inspiring." — Kirkus starred review

"Gino does an excellent job introducing factual information into the narrative without impinging upon the accessible and appealing story.. Pair this important addition to the slender but growing body of transgender fiction with Ami Polonsky’s Gracefully Grayson (2014)." — Michael Cart
